Jadon Sancho of Manchester United seemed not to be interested in watching England as they faced Germany on Monday, September 26, 2022.
The 22-year-old United star posted a snapshot of himself playing FIFA 23 on social media before Monday’s kickoff between England and Germany at Wembley Stadium.
Sancho is one of the lucky users of FIFA 23 that have had early access to the video game since September 26.
The England youngster was left out of Gareth Southgate’s squad list for this month’s Nations League games, with his absence raising questions over whether or not he will be called back to feature at the Qatar World Cup that will commence in November this year.
Meanwhile, It appears as though the 22-year-old Sancho may have been abandoned as he feels frustrated by his omission from the England players’ list despite creating a strong start to the Premier League with Manchester United this season.
Sancho has scored twice in six league appearances since the beginning of the Premier League campaign.
Whereas, the 22-year-old revealed his feelings on social media a few minutes before kick-off between his team and Germany as he posted a photo of the FIFA 23 main menu to his Instagram story.
His post, perhaps, gave the opinion that Sancho had preferred to play the game instead of watching the Three Lions in their final Nations League match.
Meanwhile, Sancho was not the only United player to miss out on a place in this month’s England squad, with Marcus Rashford also failing to cut a return to form due to his minor injury.
Sancho, however, admitted that he was disappointed to have missed out on the latest camp when interviewed on the topic after netting in United’s win over FC Sheriff in their Europa League.
“Yeah, 100 per cent, that is one of the targets,” Sancho told reporters when quizzed on his hopes of travelling to Qatar with England this winter.
“It’s unfortunate that I didn’t get the call-up. But I have to just keep focusing on myself and keep on working hard, week in and week out. That’s what I’ll do.”

Jadon Sancho’s stas
Widely regarded as one of the best young players in the world, Sancho is famous for his trickery, football intelligence, pace and use of feints in one-on-one situations.
Since he joined Manchester United in 2021, Sancho only scored 6 goals with 2 assists in 16 appearances.
The 22-year-old has scored twice in six league appearances since the beginning of the premier league campaign this season.

Why is Jadon Sancho not playing for England?
Both Sancho and Marcus Rashford missed out on England’s coach, Gareth Southgate’s latest squad list.
Rashford was not picked due to his minor injury but Southgate said that both players are not in their top form, hence their absence.
As for Sancho, Gareth Southgate and his staff believed that several other attacking players presently ranked above him in the pecking order, namely Arsenal’s Emile Smith Rowe and Bukayo Saka, Chelsea’s Raheem Sterling, and Manchester City’s duo Phil Foden and Jack Grealish.
Southgate said: “The other attacking players in the squad are slightly ahead of him in our feeling.”
Whether or not Sancho manages to obtain a place in England’s squad for the 2022 World Cup remains to be seen, however, the 22-year-old will certainly be aiming to force Southgate’s hand by maintaining his outstanding start to the Premier League campaign with Manchester United over the coming weeks.
